Kim Barnes Arico today secured her first commit for 2014: Jillian Dunston, a 6-1 wing out the Academy of the Holy Cross in Kensington, Maryland. On the women's hoops recruiting board, I had mentioned her as a new Michigan target last week. There isn't a great deal of info out there on her, but I did find this brief—but recent—scouting report from Next Sports Phenom:
Jillian played some of the best basketball I've seen her play since I've known her, I have seen her shoot the 3, seen her get rebounds, seen her drive, seen her post smaller defenders up, but never all at the same time. Jillian put it all together this weekend then add to that she played the passing lanes well getting multiple steals leading to fast break layups. She appears to have gotten quicker and added a few offensive tricks that I like.
This came out of an event last month at which she was considered one of the top performers, with her "stock" rising considerably.
So while she's not to my knowledge currently listed in any national rankings, Dunston looks like a solid pickup and a player with some real upside.
There's also a page on her at ESPN dating back to late 2011, when they ranked her as a 3 star and said this:
Thick frame, good size. Right hand dominant. Hit a floater at 6 feet. Solid production, see her more as an undersized 4 player.
If I find anything else, I'll post it either here or on the recruiting board.
UPDATE: Bret McCormick has tweeted that ASGR has Dunston ranked #98 in the nation.
Also, here's an interview with Dunston from the fall of 2011 posted on 695Hoops.
